Poppy 'Pink Fizz'
Papaver somniferum (Laciniatum Group), Opium PoppyThe elegant two-tone, pink bicolour blooms of Poppy 'Pink Fizz' sit atop tall stems of silver foliage that sway gently in the breeze. As summer progresses, the irregular and finely slashed ‘lacinate’ petals give way to green-blue seed pods that make a useful addition to dried flower arrangements. Direct sow this undemanding hardy annual to fill gaps in wildlife gardens and cottage garden planting schemes. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However, the seeds produced by somniferum and paeoniflorum poppies only are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
Poppy 'Coral Reef'
Papaver orientale, Oriental Poppy
A chance discovery on T&M research grounds has led to the introduction of this spectacular NEW true orientale poppy. Large vibrant flowers, often 5in. across of an intense and vivid coral pink never seen before in true orientale poppies from seed and rarely matched in the entire flower kingdom. Unlike many orientale poppies available, because it has been bred from seed it has consistent vigour, with many flowers over a long flowering period. Also it is not prone to 'flopping over' a fault with many varieties of this type of poppy. It is a long lived perennial making large plants within 3 years. From a late Autumn sowing it will flower in its first summer, coming true from seed. In a mixed orientale poppy trial the bees had apparently been very active as a red flowered hybrid produced several plants of this vivid pink. T&M's breeders got busy and... Coral Reef was born!More info
